Spike Lee NBA commercial (NBA loves UT)

During the Knicks game a commercial with Spike Lee talking about a man he called "the King" and how amazing he was (eventually leading up to talking about who the next great Knick will be IE Carmelo). I just thought it was very cool and also an awesome representation of one of the greatest Vols of all time, Mr.Bernard King!!!

My dad was at UT when he played, loved watching him play Bball. Great NBA player, we don't have to many of those. Houston and wasn't there someone with B.K at Ut who was decent in NBA?

Saw the ad this morning while watching "Gametime". Great pub for UT.

Ernie Grunfeld.

When UT played away, fans and others talked about taking "The Ernie & Bernie Show" on the road.

Johnny Darden, Mike Jackson, Ernie Grunfeld, Bernard King, and Johnson (can't think of first name) was the starting lineup. Those guys could play!
